Good morning All!

Something has happened to RH and when I look at Design Editor, the text is no longer wrapping the way it used to and I have to constantly move the scroll bar at the bottom of the interface to read what exists at the far right of the screen. (I am not referring to the text wrapping feature around a graphic.)

I have no idea what happened, its been like this for a couple days.

I sure would like to see my entire topic in the Design Editor w/o having to use the scroll bar! That's time consuming and a bit annoying.

I'd really appreciate some help.......

I am using Version 8.02208.

If you look at Page 38 of "Adobe Robohelp 2017" The Essentials (Kevin Siegel and William van Weelden) they give a text wrapping problem as being caused by the &$160; entity within the HTML code. The same thing (a non-breaking space) can be produced using   instead of  

 

In this case, the text just keeps on going way out to the right.  Click on "HTML" to go into code view and you see that every word is separated by  

 

If you Search and Replace (Control-H) on &$160; (replace with a space made by using the spacebar) the text will once again wrap within the Design Editor window.

 

Otherwise, you can use Control-[mousewheel] to Zoom the contents of the Design Editor in and out (to make it big or small so it'll fit left-right-wise inside the Design Editor).

Hi bvconway. There's actually a problem with zooming in Robohelp, where when you zoom in, the "page" expands off the viewable area and you have to use the horizontal scroll bar to view the enlarged text. This is what these people you are replying to had the problem with, not with space character entities.
